Christmas After All Blog
It was going to be an odd Christmas in the Swift household.
Instead of a Time of Bounty with stockings stuffed with goodies, Minnie Swift thinks of it as The Time of The Dwindling—everything is diminishing—money, the light of day and even the time her father works, for it is 1932 in the depths of the Depression. I set this book Christmas After All, one of several books I wrote in the Dear America series, in Indianapolis, Indiana in the actual house where my mother and her sisters and one brother grew up. One significant change. My family is Jewish , so they were not celebrating Christmas but Hannukah, most likely.
But I hope during this season we can celebrate all faiths and remember that first and foremost we are humans and belong to the family of humankind.
